Muenchberg (meaning “mountain of the monks”) is one of the most unique Grand Crus of Alsace because of its very particular soil of red sandstone and volcanic sediments. Produced biodynamically, it is full of elegance, purity and minerality - a work of art in the world of wine. An absolute must-try.
Pale yellow with reflections of white gold. Notes of exotic fruits such as mango and pineapple and stone fruit complemented by a touch of anise, providing freshness. Beautiful concentration on the palate with some additional herbal notes and white pepper on the long finish. Magnificent!

Lovely fresh, vibrant perfume with a lively floral and citrus character. Fine-grained and dense in the mouth with a pronounced salty-mineral quality lifted by very fine acidity. Finishes bright and with very decent length indeed, with a beautiful drink-ability throughout; a delightful Riesling.
Another amazing Riesling from the Alsace and an absolute steel to boot! Rolly Gassmann has a unique style and his wines are mini masterpieces. This Riesling is full of poise, elegance and ripeness. The nose has notes of lime fruit with honey, acacia and mineral undertones. The palate is where it comes into its own however; lush, ripe and voluptuous to the extreme.
